The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a cleric, Alfa Kayode Abdul-Fatai in the Alakuko area of the state allegedly for being in the possession of suspected human parts.
A statement from the command’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Chike Oti, confirmed the arrest on Tuesday, saying that the suspect had a female heart and lap in his room.
Oti, a Superintendent of Police, said the cleric was apprehended at Okedumola Street, Off Obadare area of Alakuko.
He, however, stated that the suspect told the police during interrogation that the human parts were given to him by an accomplice who has also been picked up.
The suspect and his alleged accomplice would be charged to court at the end of the investigation.
Oti, recalling the earlier advice given by the state Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, urged members of the public to be conscious of the activities of people living within their vicinity, and report any suspicious movement to law enforcement agencies.
“The CP urges members of the public to embark on ‘Operation Know Your Neighbour,’ because the Alfa was staying in a compound without his neighbours knowing what he does for a living,” Oti said.
